Talk that gay rights activists are going to out closeted Bush administration members and politicians is getting louder and louder around here -- not so much a whisper campaign but a deafening roar. The goal -- we think -- is to defeat the Federal Marriage Amendment, though we're puzzled by the logic: "Ha! You supported an anti-gay amendment and yet you're gay!" isn't really much of an argument for someone who has presumably lived with their own hypocrisy for years. The whole idea of outing has always seemed like overkill to us, anyway. We think being a gay Republican -- Wow! Your own private hell! -- must be torture enough.
That said, we wish that big homo George Bush would admit it already.
